Hendrick Motorsport trains Sprint at full speed.
Kyle Larson Turned the crown jewel race in Charlotte on Sunday into a laugh, starting from the pole, leading almost every lap and achieving HMS’s third straight victory.
Oh yeah, this victory has made Hendrick Motorsport the most winning team in NASCAR history (269). Go through an organization named Petty Enterprises...
“It’s unbelievable,” said team owner Rick Hendrick. I was thinking, “Something will happen, something will happen”, so now I can’t really understand it in my brain. “But they did really well tonight. I’m looking forward to the rest of the year. I’m glad that 269 is over. I’m glad it’s over.”
Hendrick Motorsport wins 269 races, including eight Daytona 500s
There are many, so let’s jump into the numbers right away.
Hendrick’s 269th victory came 37 seasons after the Cup Series debuted in 1984. Uninteresting!
Elliott wins COTA:Was NASCAR’s first trip to COTA a good race? It depends on who you ask.
Who knows who won the team’s first race? Bonus points for those who know the location. Thank you. I’ll give you some.
Hendrick Motorsport has five drivers (Jeff Gordon in 1997, 1999 and 2005, Jimmie Johnson in 2006 and 2013, Jeff Bodin in 1986, Darrell Waltrip in 1989, and two Dale Earnhardt. In the 014 Cup), he won the Daytona 500 eight times. Last year, he won seven titles to Johnson, four to Gordon, and two to Terry Labonte and Chase Elliott, making him the first team to win four consecutive titles in 1998 (1996).
Huh. Still with me?
When was Hendrick Motorsport’s first victory?
Geoff Bodine won Hendrick’s first victory in Martinsville on April 29, 1984.
This was HMS’s eighth start in the series, and Bodin, who was still in the No. 5 car that day, won six of his 18 career cup wins at the Hendrick Chevrolet.
With 93 wins by Gordon and 84 wins by Johnson, 20 drivers have won the HMS, and the team wins at least one race each year (except 1985).
Who beats Truex ?:Has Martin Trux Jr. finally emerged as a winning player in 2021?
Hendrick’s best season was 2007, when the organization won 18 times. XVIII!
Johnson won 10 times for the second straight victory, and Gordon won the remaining 6 times, second only to Jimmy in points.
Kyle Larson wins Coca-Cola 600
Now back to Larson (by the way, last week’s winner, hey, two times in a row!) And the current harvest of HMS stars …
Sunday night was theirs from the beginning and neither the team nor the drivers could get close to what they had.
“There was nothing in Hendrick’s car,” said Kyle Busch, who finished third. “I didn’t want them to finish 1-2-3-4 again, so I could at least put them in the middle.”
I think Rowdy was happy with the 3rd place on a spectacular night.
Larson started from Paul, won all stages and led 327 laps. Elliott finished in 2nd place and never got out of the top 3, while William Byron finished in 4th place, but was Larson’s only car to have something.
Meanwhile, Alex Bowman ran in fifth place all night.
If you count, Hendrick has won three times in a row, and Hendrick has finished 1-2 in a row three times.In fact, Hendrick’s car is the last did not do it It was Kansas on May 2nd that finished in at least 1st or 2nd place.
NASCAR heads to Sonoma
Yes, it’s time to turn the page. This Hendrick train will surely stop next week, right?
Where should we go … Oh, that’s right. Sonoma. Another road course! It’s good that one HMS defending champ isn’t a leader in road racing.
Anyway, it’s the first time the series has returned to Sears points since Martin Truks Jr. won his second straight 2.52 mile course in 2019.
If anyone breaks Hendrick’s train, it must be MTJ.
